🀣, take your passport and a euro or 2 and you'll think you've been to eastern Europe 🀣

That said the fish and chip shop on the seafront is one of the best I've been too. Fish is always cooked spot on. I'm wondering if I actually go there for the fishing or the grub 🀣

They were spot on the fish and chips well worth visiting for would make a blank acceptable πŸ‘

We always used to call this may water time and all we ever caught were eelsΒ 

Not too many eels about nowadays. I've only ever caught a few silver eels from the beach. Not had a conger yet either.Β

Exactly mate.Β  Not only that just a day out in the fresh sea air will do me, a fish would be a bonus.Β 

I went down the lake yesterday to see a few mates (social distancing of course), so much so that I didn't even get a cup of tea out of any of them πŸ™„πŸ€£. But I was glad to get out for more than an hour in different surroundings than just the garden or shopping.Β Β

I've been a bit busy myself. Finally got my timber delivery so I set about building a gravel/ plant filter for my pond.Β 

Before,

And the finished filter. Water has cleared up already so very pleased with the result. Just need to tidy up the oxygen lines.Β

I'm sticking until the week I'm off at the end of May, still don't think it's time to ease anything.

Fisherys cannot sort things in 2 days to adhere to all the anglers what will swamp ANY lake/pond.

Β 

I was planned for a 72hr next Tuesday, reduced to a 48hr due to Funeral Friday Morning.

Few mates already been out smashing it, but at distance. Only allowed 6 people to this lake next week and there's me and 3 mates so we've took 75% (ish) up already, hopefully good swims and some fish.

Set out Tuesday morning and be home Thursday night.
